Antique 1880's Victorian Edwardian Coat Dress With Matching Skirt

Authentic Antique 1880's Victorian Edwardian Coat Dress with Matching Skirt


From a local estate where I was told this dress was worn in the 1880s by a great aunt of a local physician. The medical doctor has been retired for quiet some time now and I have several of the estate clothing and will be listing. Quite a unique wonderful collection.


TRAVELING DRESS: Very fine tailored dress. Assuming the fabric is wool/cotton. This wonderful dress is a pull over the head style. It has a front insert that is attached with 2 hook-n-eye at the back of collar and two hook-n-eye that attaches to the lapels. Piping detailed along the edges of rounded collar of dress detailing along the front bodice and high waist, down to the front portion of skirt. There are 2 fabric covered buttons on each lapel. The high waist is edged with piping along with hook-n-eye closures. From front waist down are 9 more hook-n-eyes for closure and more piping and fabric covered buttons down the front. All the buttons are strictly for decorative purposes.

Measurements:

Bust: Blousy 36”

High Waist: 28”

Sleeve: 23”

Sweep: 100”

Total Length: 62”

CONDITION OF DRESS: No torn places, holes, or worn spots. The only fault I find is that this has been a long time family ownership and has been in storage for a very long length of time. Due to this, this garment needs a heavy duty professional cleaning!! There are many soiled places and aged spots. The front panel insert has some soiled stains and spots also. All hook-n-eye appear to be original, does not appear to be missing any. This item has been in storage for a very long time, cleaning should also refresh it. No strong musty trunk smell.



SKIRT: Very finely made in a tailored style. The “cotton/wool” ?? fabric drapes wonderfully. It has a waistband with back closure consisting of 6 hook-n-eyes. The design folds over to connect a flushed appearance. At the bottom of the hook-n-eye fold starts a large back pleat. At the right inside portion of waistband is an added insert (when added time frame unknown). The swatch of material does not match the original material. The swatch measures 9”x9”x14” and flaps over. I can only assume this was for a bustle since it does not appear to be extending the waistline.

Skirt Measurements: Waist: 26”

Total Length: 45”

Sweep: 100”

Total Length: 45”
